The town commands the prominent headland at the mouth of the River Lossie. It has dramatic and beautiful beaches, wonderful countryside and plenty to see and do. Part of the route follows the long-distance Moray Coast Trail.
Accessibility: Unsuitable for wheelchairs and buggies
Due to the loose sand and shingle, the route is unsuitable for wheelchairs, buggies or road bikes.
Terrain: Varied surfaces
The route follows the sandy beach, with areas of loose shingle, and forest tracks. The trail can also be damp through the salt marsh area. Sturdy footwear is advised.
Gradient: Generally level
Relatively level, except short steep shingle ridge of around 2 metres in height.
Barriers: Some barriers
During high Spring Tides the route may be impassable along the beach. The trail requires a short scramble over a steep section of loose shingle (approx 2 metre height) to the dunes. Access to the beach is over a long narrow timber bridge.
